'At The Dinner Party' is the chance for you, your family and your friends to experience professional restaurant quality food in the comfort of your own home.
As a highly skilled and experienced private chef, I will work with you to produce a menu personal to your very own needs, to create the perfect bespoke event catering.
I will then come to your venue, your house or a self-catering cottage you‘re renting or a marquee in your garden. On the day of the outside catering event I will arrive at the venue at a prearranged time and will prepare, cook and serve you a most memorable meal.
All you and your guests need to do is sit back and relax, I will take care of everything, even the dishes.
There really are no limitations, whether you're after a romantic dinner, a fine dining party experience for 20, a shoot party provided by outside catering, by your own private chef, a classy touch to your best friends hen party, some private cookery lessons or even your wedding catering.
At the dinner party event catering can do it all.
Having been a chef for almost 20 years my career has taken me on a journey through this amazing industry, from 5 star resort hotels, private villas in the French alps, beach side restaurants in Greece, numerous Michelin star restaurants including 2 Michelin star restaurant Le Gavroche. Where working with Michel Roux Jnr transformed me from a good chef to a great chef.
In 2009 I reached the final of BBC's MasterChef the professionals, where I finished runner-up.
In 2011 I reached the final of the Compass/Restaurant Associates chef of the year once again finishing as runner up. More recently in 2017 having fought off competition from some of the countries best chefs I made it to the semi-finals of the National Chef of the Year.
Then in both 2018 & 2019 I reached the final of the Kikkoman Masters competition again battling it out with some of the countries best chefs.
When it comes to produce I refuse to compromise on quality. That's why I work very closely with my local suppliers to source ingredients from local producers and farmers, with the aim not only to use the freshest produce, but to also have a positive effect on the local community.
Some of my food hero's are Dales of Malton - Fruit & Veg, Food to Remember - Butchers, R&J Yorkshire's finest, Hodgsons fish, I also use the weekly farmers market.
